About the event

A day packed with programming to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that declared legalized racial segregation to be unconstitutional. The confrernce will start with a showing of "The Memphis 13,"  a documentary on the integration of Memphis City Schools in Oct. 1961 and the experiences of the first 13 African American children who led that integration effort. There will be a presentation from The Hon. Catherine Lhamon – Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, with the U.S. Department of Education, Professional Panels with Youth and Adults to explore experiences of how issues of racial and educational justice play out today, and a Keynote Address from Tona Boyd, NAACP LDF.
